On their own?  Almost certainly not.  They would need to set up servers in hundreds of data centers around the world to do anything close to this.  Or you'd end up with round trip latencies in the hundreds or thousands of milliseconds which would immediately ruin every game.

 

Sounds like par for the course for Nintendo's online stuff.

It is but you have to remember they are a tiny company (6,000) compared to Sony (117,000), MS (134,000) or Google (98,000).  They don't have a massive, global infrastructure pre-built as part of their overall company operations as the others do.

The others can have dozens of other services operating and sharing costs on such an infrastructure.  Nintendo would have only a single service which would make it cost hundreds to thousands per year per gamer to pay for. 

So par for the course but not because of any corporate policy but out of pure logistics.

Stadia requires a internet browser, so thats not gonna happening ;)

You need a browser to watch YouTube on pc.

Switch has YouTube app.

 

Windows 10 has the YouTube app as well.

But who’s using that app?

Anyways, and how do you think they are going to stream stadia to iOS devices? Through chrome? LOL APPLE wouldn’t allow deep access of third party apps like that. You can’t even download on chrome IOS. It will have a separate app just like YouTube or most likely it’s going in the YouTube app itself.

I'm sure there's people using the app - probably as many people who for some reason may use their Switch to do anything other than gaming lol.

 


You cant download anything on iOS period unless its a apple approved app (itunes, app store, etc) - which is why Android is the bigger mobile platform just like how Windows is the bigger PC Operating system compared to macOS.

Apple loves to have walled garden OSes which is why Android has the edge overall with the consumer and is available on not just two different pieces of hardware like iOS is.

 

Besides Stadia is not limited to just phones - its obviously gonna be compatible with PCs, Smart TVs, Tablets, etc.

I mean legally on Switch ... Nintendo probably would never allow it because they won't get any revenue from it.

But Homebrewed Switch systems? Yeah probably they'll find a way to do it if you really want.

That said, I mean you'd probably be better off using a regular tablet with a better display than 720p. You should still be able to use your Joycons as it seems like the Google service just recognizes almost any kind of controller input.

So after the reveal of the Stadia platform, I've being thinking.

Basically you need an device to run the platform, it doesn't matter the overall power of it, as long as it can run video streaming. The obvious limitation of the Stadia is an always on-line policy, since all the processing would be done in the servers.

Could we have situation where do you have the Switch with an Stadia App, to run all the Third-Party games that the little machine could not run. And also still have the First-Party Nintendo games running off-line, in the device.

I know this is far from becoming a reality, but would pretty much make my Switch the one place for gaming at all.

In Japan Resident Evil 7, Phantasy Star Online and Assassins Creed Odyssey are available via streaming on Switch. So yes, Switch obviously could support Stadia. Question is if Nintendo wants that.

Switch already has a browser, not available to the users, but available to the devs. Facebook-connection, eshop and many game manuals are made with this.

This makes me wonder why is Nintendo taking so long to implement an internet browser. Hell, even that Netflix app should have been there by now, we're in the third year of the Switch's lifespan, dammit.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
